Serve the True Guru fearlessly, and your doubt shall be dispelled.
Do that work which the True Guru asks you to do.
When the True Guru becomes merciful, we meditate on the Naam.
The profit of devotional worship is excellent. It is obtained by the Gurmukh.
The self-willed manmukhs are trapped in the darkness of falsehood; they practice nothing but falsehood.
Go to the Gate of Truth, and speak the Truth.
The True Lord calls the true ones to the Mansion of His Presence.
O Nanak, the true ones are forever true; they are absorbed in the True Lord. ||15||

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥
sireeraag mehalaa 1 ||
Siree Raag, First Mehl:

ਭਰਮੇ ਭਾਹਿ ਨ ਵਿਝਵੈ ਜੇ ਭਵੈ ਦਿਸੰਤਰ ਦੇਸੁ ॥
bharamae bhaahi n vijhavai jae bhavai dhisanthar dhaes ||
The fire of doubt is not extinguished, even by wandering through foreign lands and countries.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਮੈਲੁ ਨ ਉਤਰੈ ਧ੍ਰਿਗੁ ਜੀਵਣੁ ਧ੍ਰਿਗੁ ਵੇਸੁ ॥
anthar mail n outharai dhhrig jeevan dhhrig vaes ||
If inner filth is not removed, one's life is cursed, and one's clothes are cursed.

ਹੋਰੁ ਕਿਤੈ ਭਗਤਿ ਨ ਹੋਵਈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੇ ਉਪਦੇਸ ॥੧॥
hor kithai bhagath n hovee bin sathigur kae oupadhaes ||1||
There is no other way to perform devotional worship, except through the Teachings of the
True Guru. ||1||

ਮਨ ਰੇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਅਗਨਿ ਨਿਵਾਰਿ ॥
man rae guramukh agan nivaar ||
O mind, become Gurmukh, and extinguish the fire within.

ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਕਹਿਆ ਮਨਿ ਵਸੈ ਹਉਮੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਮਾਰਿ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
gur kaa kehiaa man vasai houmai thrisanaa maar ||1|| rehaao ||
Let the Words of the Guru abide within your mind; let egotism and desires die. ||1||Pause||

ਮਨੁ ਮਾਣਕੁ ਨਿਰਮੋਲੁ ਹੈ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮਿ ਪਤਿ ਪਾਇ ॥
man maanak niramol hai raam naam path paae ||
The jewel of the mind is priceless; through the Name of the Lord, honor is obtained

ਮਿਲਿ ਸਤਸੰਗਤਿ ਹਰਿ ਪਾਈਐ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਹਰਿ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥
mil sathasangath har paaeeai guramukh har liv laae ||
Join the Sat Sangat, the True Congregation, and find the Lord. The Gurmukh embraces love for the Lord.

ਆਪੁ ਗਇਆ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਮਿਲਿ ਸਲਲੈ ਸਲਲ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੨॥
aap gaeiaa sukh paaeiaa mil salalai salal samaae ||2||
Give up your selfishness, and you shall find peace; like water mingling with water, you shall merge in absorpt
ion. ||2||

ਜਿਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਚੇਤਿਓ ਸੁ ਅਉਗੁਣਿ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ ॥
jin har har naam n chaethiou s aougun aavai jaae ||
Those who have not contemplated the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, are unworthy; they come and go in reincarnation.

ਜਿਸੁ ਸਤਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੁ ਭਉਜਲਿ ਪਚੈ ਪਚਾਇ ॥
jis sathagur purakh n bhaettiou s bhoujal pachai pachaae ||
One who has not met with the
True Guru, the Primal Being, is bothered and bewildered in the terrifying world-ocean.

ਇਹੁ ਮਾਣਕੁ ਜੀਉ ਨਿਰਮੋਲੁ ਹੈ ਇਉ ਕਉਡੀ ਬਦਲੈ ਜਾਇ ॥੩॥
eihu maanak jeeo niramol hai eio kouddee badhalai jaae ||3||
This jewel of the soul is priceless, and yet it is being squandered like this, in exchange for a mere shell. ||3||

ਜਿੰਨਾ ਸਤਗੁਰੁ ਰਸਿ ਮਿਲੈ ਸੇ ਪੂਰੇ ਪੁਰਖ ਸੁਜਾਣ ॥
jinnaa sathagur ras milai sae poorae purakh sujaan ||
Those who joyfully meet with the
True Guru are perfectly fulfilled and wise.

ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲਿ ਭਉਜਲੁ ਲੰਘੀਐ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਤਿ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
gur mil bhoujal langheeai dharageh path paravaan ||
Meeting with the Guru, they cross over the terrifying world-ocean. In the Court of the Lord, they are honored and approved.

ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਮੁਖ ਉਜਲੇ ਧੁਨਿ ਉਪਜੈ ਸਬਦੁ ਨੀਸਾਣੁ ॥੪॥੨੨॥

naanak thae mukh oujalae dhhun oupajai sabadh neesaan ||4||22||
O Nanak, their faces are radiant; the Music of the Shabad, the Word of God, wells up within them. ||4||22||

Guru Naanak Dev
Ang 22


On a personal note: It was this shabad, when I heard it and read it two years ago, that sorted me out and turned me in the right direction. Then the hard work began.
